    Tragically Beautiful

    I loved this book. It really does tell the story of how love invents us...all types of love. The romantic stories are a little jumbled, but sometimes that happens. I feel like the love struggles are true and beautiful, and it's really easy to be in the story. I thought theat the characters were relatable.

    The writing was amazing. In school they teach you how to show not tell. That's what Amy Bloom does. I saw everything I read. It was a true delight to read.

    This book was terrible - How did this get published?

    I cannot believe this book even got published. If you want to read this book borrow it. Because you will give it back in seconds flat. This book is so scrambled. I am an avid reader of classics that are by far much harder than todays books to read and this book had me re-reading things to find out where and what time they are happening. Sometimes you cannot even tell who is talking or when they show up in the book. For instance: Who is the boys father? Serious time and place issues here. I don't recommend this book at all.Disheveled to say the least

    A voice of truth

    Amy Bloom writes stories that really hit home with any adult that has ever expierienced the sorrows and joys of love, in all forms. This book is a continuation of one of her short stories found in her collection 'Come To Me'. It is a wonderful expansion on the story, and I only hope that Bloom will write another novel very soon. Don't pass up this incredible author, she is one of the best I have read in recent years.

    You Call This A Good Book? Give Me A Break!

    When I saw the title on this book, I just had to get it. When I started reading the book, I realized, that the only creative and interesting thing about this book was the title. As far as I'm concerned, Amy Bloom is only good at putting interesting titles on her books. I was very disappointed with this book, and I seriously don't reccomend it. Don't waste your money on it.

    Sometimes a small book can make a large difference

    I thought the title was superb, I mean something I had never thought of 'love invents us.' And along with that, does it really invent us? Of course, it invents us, it changes us, it makes us and it breaks us. The 'book' love invents us' by Amy Bloom. In my opinion this book is defintely not for the average teenager. This is a story of a girl, looking back upon her life Growing up, she was always the one in the corner by herself, at lunch eating by herself, at recess with her head in a book. She was a only child, her parents never took any interest in her, in her school life, in who she was, and what she was becoming. In the 6th grade she finds herself drawn to her English teacher, Mr. Stone. As time goes by she finds herself turning to Mr. Stone with her problems. Until one day after school she falls hopelessly in love with 'Huddie.' Tall, dark, and handsome, she spends every moment with him, and every moment away from him thinking about him. It was true love for the both of them. The story goes on with her love or Huddie and her of her unique relationship with her 6th grade English teacher. This is a wonderful book, that explores love in it's different forms.
